It’s no secret – as we get older, our skin changes. Actually, every season… month…heck, practically every day new challenges pop up. So it follows, as we evolve, our skin care regimens should too. And, I try to teach people more than how to prevent early signs of aging, but also how to keep skin truly healthy, balanced and strong for the long haul.
Skin care in your 20s is pretty simple, (ah 20…we didn’t know how good we had it) and that’s when we need the least amount of fussiness (unless we have special issues). In my 20s I could stay out till dawn and still look fresh the next day…but remember, skin repairs itself as you sleep—they don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing! Here, you are laying the groundwork for your future. Focus on simplicity and establishing a regimen you can stick with – simple, 100% pure cleanser (preferably – clean–rinse exfoliate), such as Suki Creamy Foaming Cleanser and a light moisturizer formulated for your skin type – done. Keep sun to a minimum, but make sure you get some everyday for that all–important vitamin D. Wear UV protective clothes at the beach.
Your 30s are all about beginning to embrace yourself and finding your self–confidence. How are you going to do that if you’re worried about wrinkles you don’t actually have? Sure, use products that prevent wrinkles, but that means healthy products with tons of nourishment, like Suki Pure Facial Moisture. Spare yourself from chemical exposure, free radicals and an unhealthy lifestyle, the real killers of any great complexion.
In your 40s, start thinking about going deeper into hydration, continued prevention and replenishment. Yes, your face is going to evolve, naturally, and beautifully, over the years! 100% pure, cosmeceutically–active products are always the best choice these days, when no sacrifice in results over purity or vice versa, ever needs to be considered. You may find this time of your life may be psychologically challenging, as we shed our self concept of our youth and take on ourselves as, “grown ups.” Can we pass by the lure of the Botox and the enhancements we are told will make us happy? Whatever we do, it’s important to remember, it is precisely those parts of ourselves that have always driven us insane (big nose, chubby cheeks, etc.) that make us special and indeed, beautiful.
In your 50s and later, hydration and repair (and did I say hydration?) are where it’s at. Dry skin is always an issue (you can’t think that once you apply a moisturizer in the a.m. you are all set for the day, you must reapply throughout to get and maintain great skin tone). Flood your skin with antioxidant support, and ingredients like collagen, elastin and exfoliates that help with muscle and elasticity loss. Suki Intensive Nourishing Cream does just what it says! You can in fact look radiant, beautiful and yes, even sexy AND still have wrinkles ladies! And 50 is where we start to OWN our age. That is my great hope anyway for most of us…
I think we are MOST beautiful when we allow ourselves to show our natural beauty—and enhance it—because you know, youth…mature…these are just different types of beauty.
Suki Kramer views her company as much more than skin care—it’s a personal journey. Struggling with skin issues that she couldn’t resolve, she relied on her ingenuity and developed her own line of natural, high–end products. She firmly believes our health and well–being is in our own hands and that it’s up to all of us to ‘know our beauty.’
